Hard growth inside nostril

I have a hard lump inside my right nostril. I noticed it about two months ago after feeling like something was in my nose. I tried seeing an ENT but was told I needed a referral. I ended up at urgent care due to severe discomfort and sinus pain. Doctor told me it was likely a skin infection. Was given antibacterial ointment. I ended up in the ER and was told I had a bacterial sinus infection. I was given antibiotics. Three antibiotics later and I am still suffering. This lump cannot be seen inside my nose. But I can feel it easily with the tip of my finger. It has gotten bigger now and I am still waiting to see an ENT. Primary care and Urgent Care will no longer help me as they don’t think they are the right people to ask. This hard lump is on the wall that is between my nasal cavity and nostril. It feels like a round ball inside my nose and it’s causing great discomfort. When I tried to explain it to the doctors they didn’t seem to be bothered by it because they couldn’t see it. I have no idea what it could be. Tumor? Nasal spur? Cyst? It’s hard like bone and it doesn’t seem like it moves when I press down on it. I don’t think it’s very painful but it’s causing pain all around my nostril and causing issues because it’s pressing down on parts of my nose. I have a deviated septum but I can’t recall any recent injuries to my nose. However, I did smack my front teeth about two months ago but I doubt that is relevant?
